Peacock Visual Arts are proud to be hosting a major Retrospective of Neat’s life’s work, STANDS SCOTLAND WHERE SHE DID? from 28 September – 9 November 2013.
A stunning collection of photographs capturing experiences and relationships over a long life will be on show. Neat is a champion of the marginalized – Scottish Travelling People, Gaelic bards, salmon-netters, crofters, bee-keepers, horse breeders, Andalucian villagers, poets and artists.
Neat has worked closely with many leading Scottish figures – MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Hamish Henderson, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Margaret Gardiner (Pier Arts Centre, Orkney) and the Fife singer Jean Redpath. Also, Robert Burns and Charles Rennie Mackintosh!
Six of Neat’s films will be screened at The Belmont Picturehouse including:
'Play me Something' (1988), winner of the Europa Prize, Barcelona 1989. This 35mm feature film shot on the Isle of Barra and Venice, features John Berger, Tilda Swinton, Hamish Henderson and Liz Lochhead;
‘Journey to a Kingdom – Hamish Henderson returns to the North East of Scotland’ (1992).
STANDS SCOTLAND WHERE SHE DID? will be a major exhibition, featuring a new suite of screen-prints by Neat and original works by many of the major artists with whom he has collaborated over 50 years; years during which Scottish culture and politics have changed dramatically.
To coincide with this Retrospective, Polygon (Edinburgh) has published a major book, 'These Faces; photographs and drawings by Timothy Neat', with an important introduction by John Berger.
